The Newberry County Sheriff’s Office says a search warrant at a meth lab has led to the arrest of six people and two young children were taken into protective custody.
Deputies say after a series of citizen complaints, law enforcement intelligence led to the execution of a search warrant at 252 Adam Teseniar Road located just off Highway 121 in the Newberry section of Newberry County.
Investigators say once inside, they found a working meth lab and six people were taken into custody as follows:
23-year-old Amber Christine Teseniar
23-year-old Heather Brooke Anderson
51-year-old Jeffery Boyd Teseniar
42-year-old Kelly Mac Teseniar
19-year-old Meghan Lee Teseniar
26-year-old Nicholas Logan Teseniar
All six individuals will be charged with manufacturing meth and willfully exposing a child to meth.
Investigators say once inside the house not only was there a functioning meth lab partially inside and partially outside of the house, but the house was in absolutely deplorable conditions.
The officers located two small children in the home, one 2 and one 11 months. The children were transported for medical examination because of the exposure to the meth lab. Once released without injury, they were placed into custody of the South Carolina Department of Social Services.
A certified clean-up crew was called to the residence to safely dismantle and dispose of the meth lab.
